I did get within a 100 posts of passing daytimedave in posts but he is slowly getting away. Doug also passed me in posts and is closing in on Dave. Lol.
I will post when I get the time. I don't know when I will get time to be regurarly active again, maybe not until I am done gathering firewood. That takes up a lot of time.
Until I get back, I ask you guys to please TEMPORARLY take over on watching for posting milestones.
- daytime dave, Michiganmobileman and JDGuy445 have said thanks

I hope you get what you need done. Gather your firewood, it will be a cold winter. Take care of what you have to.

I think every once in a while we all have a little taking care of business to be away for a while. Then there's just more good reading when you get back.

I also find it hard to get on this site as often as I would like, but a little time spent on here now and then when I get time to do so is always a "Tonic for what ails me". Someone is sure to cover your "Keeper of the Posts Post" until you can get back.

I started the day with cutting up a tree I cut down a few days ago and then hauled it to the back yard to be split. Then, I pulled down a few little ones and cut then up and brought those up as well. Neighbor Herby had two trees he wanted me to cut down for him, I took one down today. It came down easy. I cut it up, brought the wood home and took the brush into the woods out of sight. I did not have it in me to take down the other tree today, as I always work alone and today was no different. So, I am tired! I don't have school tomorrow so I will take down the other tree he has and split as much of the wood as I can.
I only cut down trees for firewood if they are dead. Herby's trees are still live, so I can't burn them until next year anyway. Not only are they live, but they are elm trees... splitting these suckers will be tough!

I took a picture of some of the mess I have going in the back yard. I have another pile of s,plit wood about the same size to be stacked. The pieces off to the side had ants in them. They have been sprayed a few times so I think it is safe for me to split them now.
One of the tires on my trailer is done. It goes flat, is dry rotted, and is bald. The last few days it had a load of wood in it so the air leaked out to the rim. I put air in it and I heard the tire cracking. I have seen what over inflated tires can do and I don't want to use the trailer until I get the tire situation worked out. It would probably be fine, but I don't want to be driving through the woods with a load of heavy wood on and hit a pointy rock. Until I get the trailer back into service I won't be doing a lot of firewood work. I will start a thread when I start to get to work on the trailer.
